Let me finish talking to these guys.
- I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
- Okay, easy.
Easy.
Hi.
You know, I admire you, Ray.
You're one of those guys who just glide over every speed bump.
It all comes so easy.
But me No, people don't expect much from me.
Most of the time I prove them right.
I guess that's why I wanted chief, you know? Show them I could do it.
Well, look, it's not so easy for me either.
I'm just pretty good at faking it.
Oh, my God.
I'll get you some water.
I swear to God, that's what she said.
Get out of here.
Hey, he okay? He gets excited.
Ray! Find me some aspirin too.

- May they go now? - I'll be with you in a moment, sir.
He's here for the actors.
It's his play they ruined.
My stage manager is filling in.
Horrid.
But if I can get them back in time, I might still have a second act.
I doubt these guys are up for it.
Oh, they're professionals.
You know, the show must go on.
Yeah.
Why is that exactly? I mean, why can't the show just stop once in a while? Keep the pressure going, okay? Don't move.
Tachy at 120.
Pulse is weak and thready.
- Hurts when I breathe.

Also got another 15 noncriticals, fractures and contusions.
- We're only 8 minutes behind the call.
- Yeah? You assessed 25 patients in eight minutes? - There's no paperwork out here.
- And Morris is with you, right? Send him to St.
Rafe's, he needs a banana bag.
Only the criticals go there, the rest to Lakeview.
St.
Rafe's? Why not County? You guys closed the Trauma.
Got a call an hour ago.
Whoa, this is a Level One.
St.
Rafe's can't take care of patients like we can.
If you can get County to open, all the better.
It's a lot closer.
County General on two-bravo.
Ray? You're with Rescue 56? Our Ray? No, she's not here.
Him either.
We got Abby.

Lots wounded.
Five criticals.
We need you to open up.

R.
It's mostly blunt trauma.
Okay.
We can accept one critical.
Come on, Abby.
Take all five.
No, we're understaffed here.
- They might not make it anywhere else.
- We don't have any Attendings.
- You're a doctor, you can do this.
- No, no.
I have to run it by Kovac.
There isn't any time.
The CPR guy's flatline.
Okay, we are down to four criticals.
- Ray, I can't.
- Come on, County General.
Will you accept these patients? Abby, you're being recorded, you know.
I know.
Rescue 56, we're taking four trauma patients.
You have blanket orders for IVs, C- spine and O2.
Thank you, County.
We are four minutes out.
Okay.
Okay, let's get patients out of Trauma, Sutures and Curtain 2.
Jerry, tell the O.
R.
to set up another room.
Chuny, page Kovac.
Okay, listen up.
Okay, first of all you should all eat and drink well because the party's on Weaver.
Now, that is a surprise.
Guys on duty, don't let me see beer in your hand.
Hey, 11 years, couldn't we spring for some caviar for the man? Anyway there's something my father would say when a friend went on a journey.
And he said it to me when I came to the United States first.
So I thought of it today when I realized I wouldn't be working with this guy anymore.
Not for a long time, at least.
My father would clasp the person's hand and say: "We only part to meet again.
" Hear, hear.
Cheers.
- Cheers.
- To Carter.
Cheers, yes.
To the doc.
Burst eardrum, no Battle's sign.

- All right, get her on her side.
- One, two.
- What are you doing? - Same question.

Uterus compresses the vena cava, reducing cardiac output.
We're getting her blood pressure back up.
- You're okay, Molly.
We've got you.
- My back.
- Does it hurt here? - No.
All right.
Those back pains, they were contractions.

Flip the bed.
Get a warmer, a BOA Kit and page OB.
- BP's 80 palp.
- Ten blade.
Chuny, everything okay? Baby's coming, mom's hypotensive and we don't have fetal heart tones.
Well, a simple "no" would have sufficed.
- Where's Kovac? - On his way, I guess.
- Doesn't he need an x-ray? - Thirty-two French.
He's unstable with evidence of a hemothorax.
- Tube first, ask questions later.
- Good.
Systolic's up to a hundred.
You did that test tube quick.
O- neg on two pressure bags.
Set up for subclavian.

How's your throat? - Little raw, all the yelling.
No dorsalis pedis.
No posterior tib.
- That doesn't sound good.
- You cut the artery in your foot.
- You need surgery, all right? - We only called a few minutes ago.
- I doubt the O.
R.
's gonna be ready.
- No, they will be.
Have them call us back - as soon as they can.
- Off the phone.
Go.
Go.
O.
R.
I called OB.
They're in the middle of a crash section.
- There we go.
- Head's out, Mom.
Lots of hair.
- Molly, you're doing so good, baby.
- Suction.
- Neela? - Turtle sign.
Jerry, 911 them.
Tell them we've got a shoulder.
- Shoulder dystocia.
- Is something wrong with our baby? He's a bit big for your pelvis.
You can do this, Molly.
Push again.
Really hard, okay? Pull her legs back.
- Anterior shoulder is stuck.
- Supra-pubic pressure, hard as you can.
- Another big push, Mom.
Come on.
- Molly, push again, all you've got.
- I can't.
- You can, Molly.
I know you can.
- Come on, baby.
- She can't, contraction's over.
- Fetal pulse is coming back up.
- All right.
All right, support her head.
Right here.
- I'll be back in a second.
- Wait, she's leaving? Why is she leaving? Abby, I've got a shoulder dystocia and OB's MIA.
- Did you try a Wood's screw maneuver? - Never heard of it.
That gives me satisfaction.
I'm getting a flash, I can't thread the wire.
They need someone with experience.
I'll do this? - Okay.
- You're giving up? If you can't get a procedure after the third attempt, you never will.
- Is that from Tintinalli's book? - No, the book of John Carter.
- Heart beat's up to 140.
- This guy needs tons of volume.
- Stay ahead four units.
- What's going on? - Mom's pressure's borderline.
- Baby decels with contractions.
- Okay, hi.
I'm Dr.
Lockhart.
- Are you from OB? I used to be, yes.
Okay.
Let's see if we can coax this little guy out, huh? - It's a girl.
- Her name's Janis.
Janis.
Okay.
Okay, I'm going to rotate Janis' posterior shoulder.
Here comes another contraction.
Mom, come on, push.
Flex the arms across the chest.
Come on.
Big push, okay? - Baby's pulse is dropping again.
- In the 80s.
Poor variability.
All right.
Come on, Molly, focus.
Really big push.
- She's tiring out.
Sats, 91.
- Okay.
All right, all right, relax.
Put her on oxygen.
Have O-neg standing by.
- Someone asked me to bring you this.
- Did OB call back? Stuck in the O.
R.
They said it'd be about 15 minutes.
- How long ago was that? - Eight minutes ago.
- What about Luka? - Want me to page him again? - No.
All right, you.
- Me? - Yeah.
You know where Ike Ryan's is? - Yes.
Get over there, find Kovac and bring him back here, fast.
Okay, we can't wait, not with the late decels.
- Betadine, lido and a 10 blade.
- Get her out! You're doing a section by yourself? Where the hell is Luka? I only needed one more shot.
- I got lucky.
- Three times in a row? You guys just missed Kovac running the table on me.
I've heard Kovac cheats.
Yeah, I didn't even know they played pool in Croatia.
Sure, but we just use broomsticks and goat testicles.
- Get out of here.
- No, it's hard.
Those balls don't roll straight.
Alrighty then.
On that note, I'm gonna take the young man home.
Greg.
- Take care of yourself.
- Thank you.
- For everything.
- Anytime.
All right, and I'll see you suckers later.
Enjoy yourselves.
See you.
- Got your toast ready? - Yeah.
Gotta say something, don't you? - Do I? - Oh, yeah.
Definitely.
Let me go lick my wounds first.
I'll be right back.
- Dr.
Lewis said wait till she gets here.
- When's that gonna be? She's on the overnight.
She's gonna stop by on her way in.
Who's-? Who's Kovac? - Neela, talk to me.
- Porch collapse in Wrigleyville.
- I know.
Tell me about the patient.
- Chest trauma, two liters out the left.
- We're doing a cutdown.
Ray? - Open it up to the femoral sheath.
This is the fastest way to resuscitate a peri-arrest patient.
Right? That's right.
Looks good.
Run the level one.
Do you know Abby's doing a symphysiotomy in here? By dissecting the ligaments connecting the pubic bone you can get up to three more centimeters of pelvic space.
- Fetal tracing is holding in the 90s.
- Feels like we opened up a bit.
- So next contraction, big push, okay? - Okay.
- Here we go.

All right, come on, Molly.
Come on, Molly, push.

And the anterior shoulder is out.

Don't give him no excuse to give any lip, though.
How come you didn't pick him up, man? Damn.
What time is it? He was waiting on you, D.
You never showed up.
Where were you? Hey, listen.
You his father.
You understand that? The only one he's got.
Oh, man.
- Systolic's up to 110.
- Where's Dubenko? - He's getting the O.
R.
ready.
- Jessica's ex-lap? The impaled girl? Anspaugh took her up to Surgery.
She's stable.
Ray, he's getting stridorous.
Okay.
Sit tight, Riley.
I'll check up on you in a bit, okay? All right, come get me if he decompensates.
- How's your breathing, man? - Little rough.

I feel like I grew up here with all of you.
Where did everybody go? Work.
They said they'd be back.

Heard there was free food.
I like you with the beard.

I'll check your crit in Angio.
- Symphysiotomy, huh? - Healthy girl.
Eight pounds, 10 ounces.
Dr.
Barnett, I was told you demanded we not take any patients before the tib-fib guy.
I reprioritized.
Take Neela's patient first, my guy can wait.
They took me to Lakeview.
I couldn't find a taxi.
- What do you guys need? - We're all good, Morris.
Really? You sure? I'm gonna go lie down.
Hey, you guys all ditched Carter.
He was hugging some huge orderly when I got there.
- We got it under control now.
- Well, that's good.
Cosmo's been screaming like a banshee.
I intend to spend my shift sleeping.
Carter, your volleyball girl's ready for the reduction.
- It's okay, I'll get it.
- I'll take it.
One more for the road.
- How long are you here? - Just have to pick up some stuff.
- How about you? - I'm off as soon as you're ready.
How does "never" sound? Luka.
Luka.
Did you hear from Alex? Is he here? Why do I have to hang my hand from these things? - Janell, manners.
- So that I can realign your bones.
- Hello.
I'm Dr.
Carter.
- Clyde Parkerson.
My wife, Eva.
I'm sure that Janell told you she broke her wrist.
A.
k.
a.
Colles' fracture.
- And we gave her a local anesthesia.
- A.
k.
a.
hematoma block.
And that she has a future in medicine, it would seem.
A.
k.
a.
I'll be rich.
- I'll give you countertraction.
- Okay.
Dr.
Carter, do you remember us? I'm sorry, I don't.
Cast padding.
- I was a patient here in 1994.
- Really? We went into premature labor at 32 weeks.
There was no time to get me to the OB floor so I gave birth here in the ER.
You delivered her.
- I did? - Yes, you did.
Cool.
Two-inch roll.
- Can I have the purple cast? - Whatever you want.
- He must have gone through my purse.
- Tried to buy a bus ticket? They wouldn't let him.
He took off while they called the cops.
- Probably went to a friend's apartment.
- I called them all.
What did the police say? They said to wait at home while they're searching but I'm not gonna sit, I have to go try to find him.
- What if he shows up at the apartment? - Erica's there.
She's gonna stay.
How much cash did he get? About 80, maybe a hundred, I don't know.
- He's pissed.
He's walking it off.
- He tried to buy a ticket to Colorado.
He's gonna do whatever he can to see Steve.
He's not gonna stop.
He doesn't have his Glucometer.
He doesn't have his syringes.
- He doesn't have his insulin.
- Sam, Sam, Sam, hey, hey, hey.
He'll be okay for the next 12 hours.
We'll find him way before then.
Let me get my jacket.
Hey, Luka, will you-? Will you get some NPH from lockup? And some D5 and some D10 too, okay? Okay.
I'll get it.
- Can I help you? - Yeah, I'm looking for Charlie Pratt.
- I know you? - Your name is Charlie Pratt? Yeah.
- I'm sorry, I must have got it wrong.
- Chaz, who is it? Is there a problem? - Are you Charlie? - Are you a bill collector? Then, yeah, I'm Charlie.
I'm an ER doc over at County.
- Is somebody sick? - No.
No, nothing like that.
I got your name from the folks at Ceasefire.
Couldn't wait till morning? I'm gonna be there tomorrow for a meeting anyway.
You're right.
It can wait.
You all right, son? Yeah, I'm okay.
Maybe you ought to come in.
Sorry if I disturbed you.
Did I spell symphysiotomy right? - Yeah.
- Thank you.
- How's your friend? - Missed the aorta.
Anspaugh fixed her up.
Jessica's gonna be fine.
You look tired.
You should go home.
I wanna be here when my friends wake up.
All right, then.
Help yourself to a chart.
Dr.
Carter.
I was just on my way out.
Thought I'd stop by.
- Sorry we missed the party.
- You weren't the only ones.
So I just found this in my locker.
It has been in there for a very long time.
And, to be honest, I haven't given it much thought for many years.
Not since Mark died.
When you interned for Dr.
Greene he would have everybody write a letter to themselves that they wouldn't open until their very last day of Residency.
So that's your letter to yourself? What does it say? It says that I'm scared.
And that I know I have a lot to learn.
And I hope I learn it quickly.
And that I pray to God that I don't kill anybody.
And it says that if I'm good at this and I can stick it out and become an Attending well, that will be all I ever need.
I got a plane to catch.
One day you'll look up, and maybe 10 years will have passed.
Carter, you're gonna make a good doctor.
Carter, you gotta hurry it up.
You got a million things to do.
You set the tone, Carter.
- Morris? - I think I might puke again.
You set the tone, Morris.
Never mind.
- What's that? - My contract.
Oh, okay, then I guess you have some more writing to do.
It's good enough for Carter.
Think it's weird if I put, "Dear Neela"? Hey, Erica, any word? Did Bobby's mom call back? He wasn't with him? Okay.
Yeah, it's gonna be all right.
What about Navy Pier? He likes the rides there.
- It's after 11, it's closed.
- What about your phone, is it charged? Sam.
Sam.
It's all gonna be okay.
